Eduardo Rodriguez (4-2, 4.89, 1.42) vs. Marcus Stroman (1-6, 2.95, 1.29)
Much controversy came before the start of yesterday's series opener as Vlad Guerrero Jr. wasn't inserted into the lineup for a nationally-televised holiday game, which was won in a rout by the Red Sox. The Blue Jays look to take advantage of most of the attention being placed on the Raptors tonight and come up with a better performance in the second of a four-game series.
Marcus Stroman takes the ball for the Jays against Eduardo Rodriguez -- just look at their records, it would (on paper) make more sense for Stroman to be the 4-2 pitcher and Rodriguez the 1-6 pitcher. Just shows you the true worth of wins in today's baseball.
One roster move to announce:
ROSTER MOVE:— Toronto Blue Jays (@BlueJays) May 21, 2019
We’ve placed RHP Ryan Tepera (right elbow impingement) on the 10-day IL and recalled RHP Jimmy Cordero from the @BuffaloBisons. pic.twitter.com/73v7kU5F5a
Eric Sogard is still out with a sprained thumb.
Hopefully tonight's game is a lot less controversial and Vlad loosens the pressure by beating the shit out of Rodriguez's fastballs.
BLUE JAYS TRIVIA:
You all probably remember the Marcus Stroman HR against the Braves a couple years ago, but who is the only other pitcher to hit a HR for the Blue Jays?
This is your "#FreeVlad" game threat.
